A Culture of Innovation
ESB is a company that delivers energy solutions, powered by knowledge. We have the highest IT spend of any company in Ireland and technical innovation is at the heart of all that we do. So, whichever part of the business you work in, you will learn about exciting new applications and business processes through an innovative mix of classroom training, e-learning, personal coaching and direct hands-on experience.
